Trees face danger in the drought

INDIANA -- The drought has affected much of the agriculture in the state and around the nation.

But trees may also be in danger because of the drought.

The first signs of stress are the the first signs of death. So experts say you should look into the health of your tree now.

Waiting too long could cost you lots of money in the end.

"Take care of it now," Larry Rose  said. "It's cheaper because if you have to cut down a dead tree, that's costly. If you have to remove a stump, that's costly. Water is the cheapest part to save a tree now."

The signs of a stressed tree includes curling or browning of leaves, no growing of new leaves, and splitting of the bark at the base of the trunk.
